A wheelchair system that operates like a shopper trolley scheme is being offered to the wider community. These include hospitals, shopping precincts and exhibitions centres. The idea is to make it easier for people to get around these venues without having to bring their own wheelchair. Like the trolley arrangement, it has a deposit option and the chair is non-collapsible so cannot be taken away in the back of a car.
Available from Alphacare, the stackable stainless steel Tautmann wheelchairs come in a space-saving, stackable setup that holds 10 pieces.
Each has a moveable arm and footrest, ergonomic seat and back section for maximum comfort. A deposit money system, safety belt and IV pole are optional.
